Consensus: Funny, self-referential, and irreverent to a fault, The Wolf of Wall Street finds Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio at their most infectiously dynamic.

David Thomson
The New Republic

DiCaprio has hinted before that comedy might be his natural calling -- think of Catch Me If You Can -- but his energy here is not just fun, it's discovery.

The Wolf of Wall Street is a magnificent black comedy: fast, funny, and remarkably filthy.

It may be the most exuberant film about sin ever made.

Wesley Morris

For three hours the movie operates at a ridiculous comedic pitch. You never forget you're at the circus. You never lose site of the lawlessness, the reckless pleasure, the sheer lunacy and lack of regulation.

Richard Brody
New Yorker

Scorsese unleashes a furious, yet exquisitely controlled, kinetic energy, complete with a plunging and soaring camera, mercurial and conspicuous special effects, counterfactual scenes, subjective fantasies, and swirling choreography on a grand scale.

Jordan (Leonardo DiCaprio) does a great job playing a depraved stockbroker, but the movie went on and on. I didn't last beyond the first 3/4 hr.

Best infomercial for debauchery yet.

The greatest thing about this addictive, chaotic, machismo piece of beefcake movie magic, would have to be Scorsese's ability to slow down where it hurts,… More

The film started off good showing Belfort build his empire from the bottom, thought that was interesting. Then once he's successful (30 minutes in the… More
